- SIGNED "R B Hayes" and attractively framed with a facsimile of a period engraving. 3.25" x 2". Rutherford B. Hayes (1822-1893) was the nineteenth president of the United States. His presidency and the Compromise of 1877 effectively ended the Reconstruction Era that followed the Civil War. Matted and framed to the overall size of 7" x 10.5". Signature is bold, very light foxing. Engraving is very good. Rutherford Birchard Hayes (Oct 4, 1822 - Jan 17, 1893) served as the 19th President of the United States from 1877 to 1881. He assumed the presidency at the end of the Reconstruction Era through the Compromise of 1877. In office he ended Army support for Republican state governments in the South, promoted civil service reform, and attempted to reconcile the divisions left over from the Civil War and Reconstruction. Hayes, an attorney in Ohio, was city solicitor of Cincinnati from 1858 to 1861. When the Civil War began, he left a fledgling political career to join the Union Army as an officer. Hayes was wounded five times, most seriously at the Battle of South Mountain. He earned a reputation for bravery in combat and was promoted to the rank of brevet major general. After the war, he served in the Congress from 1865 to 1867 as a Republican. Hayes left Congress to run for Governor of Ohio and was elected to two consecutive terms, from 1868 to 1872, and then to a third term, from 1876 to 1877. "Presented to the Rev. George Minnix in recognition of his avidity for Presidential autographs, on the occasion of his 37th birthday. /s/ Robert B. Beardsley / April 22, 1976" in red ink hand written on the rear.
